The Alexandria Quartet
Justine, Cleo, Balthazar, Mountolive, nessim. Pursewarden,
Flowery Proustian prose, only with a darker tone. This takes time to read––reflective and serious––but surprise twists in character and plot development keep one committed. It's divided into 4 novels for easier digesting.
The sea is high again today, with a thrilling flush of wind.
